Irvine Valley College student Rosa Rodriguez, like many among the nearly 800,000 other immigrants brought to U.S. as children, is increasingly nervous that she’ll lose her legal residency status and face deportation.

That motivated her to meet with congressional staffers last week and plead for their boss, Rep. Mimi Walters, to take a leadership role in preserving protections made available to her and other so-called Dreamers by the Obama Administration.
